As we move into 2023, Shelter Movers Nova Scotia hopes to increase reach in province this year.
When thinking about what she hopes SMNS will accomplish in 2023, Nova Scotia Chapter Director Jennifer O’Neil says more awareness and volunteers are key.
Nova Scotia had a very busy year in 2022 – completing 170 moves – and sent out a call out for more volunteers that was picked up by media so moves wouldn’t be canceled.
Jennifer says in addition to recruiting more volunteers in the HRM, Annapolis Valley and South Shore, they are also hoping to create a base in Truro.
“We couldn’t have predicted such an increase in demand for our services.”
To fulfill those goals, Nova Scotia will have to onboard an additional 75 volunteers and retain their current volunteer group.
Jennifer O’Neil became Chapter Director this month after three years of volunteering with the organization. She says it’s been a life changing experience, and encourages others to get involved.
